    Both, but more use on the personal side. I have work emails pushed from Lotus to my backberry email..that way I know whats going on if I'm away from the computer..thats the extent of my business use.

    Both for me.
    I own my BB and it is on my personal plan. The department does give us a phone allowance and we get a discount from Verizon but I pay for my phones and service. I would say I use my BB for about 60% business and 40% personal use.

    My personal phone that is used for both. I would say 70 percent business and 30 percent entertainment.

    Why is the "neither" option even there? What else would you use your BB for besides personal or business?


    Aside from "paper weight" if you brick it, of course.

    :-) Paper weight -- Exactly! This is my first poll, and I wanted to make sure there were an adequate number of choices. There are some very opinionated and argumentative people on here, so I figured if I had a neither or other choice, I could accommodate everyone's reply. It is interesting to see how it's almost 50/50 between personal & both.

    LOL...heck no! I was first introduced to the BlackBerry for business purposes, so I always guessed that it was basically used for just that. It seems that RIM has really developed a well-rounded choice of phones for everyone.

    I own my Storm, but it runs on a BES. The admins are pretty flexible, but WebSense gets on my nerves when I surf the web for BlackBerry wallpapers and get blocked because of the category of "Violence" ? LOL (I did find a work-around btw!)

    Isn't that the truth! I used to have that mentality. I justified having a BB because I wanted to run my eBay business without having to be tied to a computer all day. Now I realize that I own a BB because I love BB's.

    Guess it's true, once you go Black, you never go back. BlackBerry that is.
